I just hope this brings them one step closer to letting normal mtb on to Wilderness designated Forest Service lands. Forest Service has been kicking that can down the road for a long time

For the people asking “Why?”.......it is the same answer for a lot of things in the world . 1) it’s about the money and 2) older people make up the rules/laws. Every National Park I’ve visited the last 5 years had 98% of the proper singletrack trails

Every year there always seems to be a small segment of the mtb world that starts making claims about Rampage “losing its way” or “too slopestyle” or lost it “original spirit” ........ and I wonder - wtf do these people expect it to be??

And the only answer I can come up with is: they want it to be a glorified Downhill race- with some big drops that are straight aired.

And as I said last year, once that happens (if ever) , Redbull will pull its title sponsorship, people will lose interest and it will be “Rampage- Sponsored by Lipton Ice tea”. It will lose all clout as an extreme sports event.

Just an observation but, for example, when he jumps the first two jumps ..... the hub goes silent after he leaves the lip - and other jumps it continues to pawl in the air. Something also seemed off about the “Doppler effect” of the pawl passing by.....as if the sound was captured elsewhere and spliced in. At the end of the day it is still a great vid tho.

I’d bet twenty dollars at least 1/2 of the hub pawl was added in as a sound effect.......just so it seems more “raw”
If you think it’s all real then This vid is for you

I totally hear you on that and yes, many riders avoid going all in just as World Cup racers don't practice at their limits. I've been to Rampage many times, I've hung off those cliffs and I've built those lines. A number of those riders are my friends...more

Many Rampage riders have gone on record saying they do not ride full-pull Rampage runs more than once a year because they are simply too gnarly. Those same riders went out & created the Fest Series so they could practice Rampage-level speed &...more

I like the idea of stepping away from a completely “invite only” format - & with all due respect to Carson and Kyle, I just wonder how “proving” yourself on what are more or less big groomed motocross style dirt jumps can or will parallel the rocky, steep and massive drops of the Rampage site?

I’m pretty sure Dylan would have put all the stair forms back together before he left.......probably wrote a little apology letter and left a $50 bill as a tip too ........(that’s the BMX way). #TheMoreYouKnow
